Skyjack has sold 1060 electric vertical masts and scissors to Speedy Hire, based in the UK.

The order is part of Speedy’s access equipment replacement and expansion programme, meaning its oldest machine was manufactured in 2013.

Andy Connor, supply chain director at Speedy, said, “With energy costs increasing on a daily basis so we want the latest products on the market, both in terms of sustainability and innovation. And these machines fit the bill.”

The majority of Speedy’s order includes enhanced 24v Skyjack DC electric scissors with working heights from 19 ft to 32 ft. Also included in the order are 24v DC electric vertical mast lifts, offering 12 ft or 16 ft working heights and a unique 0.41m traversing deck. Speedy also ordered some diesel-powered SJ 6832 RT scissor lifts with a working height of 32 ft, marking the first time Speedy has invested in diesel-powered access equipment.

“The diesel machines ensure we can answer every customer need and allow us to expand into larger construction job sites,” added Mr Connor.
